Public Lands Advocacy

 

The Conservation Department supports legislation and public land management planning processes that promote recreation in balance with conservation of natural resources including wildlife, water and wild landscapes.  CMC members are hikers, climbers, skiers, and general outdoor enthusiasts so we work with public land managers and policy makers to build land-use plans that support sustainable, multiuse recreation opportunities.

KEEP PUBLIC LAND PUBLICAn aggressive campaign to transfer public lands to state control threatens hundreds of millions of acres of national forests, rangelands, wildlife refuges, wilderness areas and historic sites. Imagine if the place where you love to hike, climb, paddle, ski, bike, fish, hunt, or camp were suddenly sold off for profit, or to cover the cost of a wildfire or drought. Help us protect public lands today...
